Investing in Shipping Containers

  1. 1. An Alternative Investment that performs much better than commodity investments Commodities Stocks Alternate Investments
  2. 2. Since the 2008 sub-prime crisis, which led to the USA and European economic debacle, investors have actively looked for alternative investments that are less risky than the stock market. They see the commodities market not doing so well either.
  3. 3. Commodities are raw materials that are negotiable in the stock market. Commodities include the energy field (oil, coal, natural gas), metals (gold, silver, zinc), and grains (rice, corn, wheat). Investing in commodities is less risky than the stock market, however, fluctuations do occur resulting in investor loses.
  4. 4. The following graphs are a prime example. Commodities are affected by a number of factors including agricultural drought, political tensions, etc.

  9. 9. A less risky, but much more stable and profitable investment can be found in shipping containers. Investors are guaranteed handsome returns, this is possible because the shipping container sector has always been in high demand and is not subject to geopolitical or climate issues.

  10. 10. Trading in Commodities is Very Risky Uncertainty: the commodities markets can be volatile and subject to wild price swings. Prices can also remain stagnant. Too complex: it is hard to understand and is not as familiar as investing in stocks and bonds. Exposure to Risk: commodities mutual funds can concentrate assets in one sector resulting in a greater exposure to risk. Constant monitoring: price fluctuations occur daily, investors must stay of top always.
